Thanks for the feedback!
Why would you lose water pressure only on the kitchen faucet which is directly behind the wall to the tub and toilet and bathroom sink if they are fine?
Answer The problem could be as simple as a clogged screen in your faucet. It also may be a low flow gasket which is in the faucet to reduce water usage. Has this …alwys been a problem or is it a new problem?
Answer Make sure the drain line and the vent are cleared. Noises like that are usually caused by either restricted flow or a plugged drain vent.
Check and see if the water line going from the dishwasher to the disposal has enough slack to run up and over the connection to the disposal.If its just running along the cabi…net floor and straight up into the disposal that's the problem.Its called an anti siphon loop
Why would the hot water in the bath and basin have little pressure in a new bathroom suite that was just installed when the hot water in kitchen is OK?
Answer It could be many things: undersized piping, valves not fully opened, valves/strainers/aerators clogged with debris, or, simply the stuff on the 1st …floor has more pressure than the stuff on the 2nd floor due to elevation. If it is a problem you may want to have a licensed plumber look at it.
70ish psi if your on city water, well waters gana be less
there may be a slight blockage in the sewer line
is could be a waste line problem where the gradient is wrong or your sewer line may be blocked somewhere Stoppage down stream
Check the screen and aerator in the spout for debris that may block the openings
A blocked pipe. The water can not go down the pipe, so it comes out in your sink.
When water disappears down a sink, it goes through pipes and either goes into a septic system in the city or a septic tank in the country.
Your faucet may be clogged. If you have good pressure elsewhere in the house, this is your most likely culprit. You may just have crappy overall water pressure. If you don't… have good pressure in the tub or elsewhere, consult with a plumber about installing a pressure tank to increase your water pressure.
Check the Aerator for debris in the screen. Unscrew it from the end of the faucet and rinse it out then reinstall.
The water goes down the plughole/drain and then down the pipes.
If you have a garbage disposal, the dishwasher empties into that. The disposal either needs cleaning to open the small drain holes or they have become rusted and don't have en…ough capacity for the washer. There is an extension available that could be put on the other side of the sink and the dishwasher attached there so that it drained directly into the drain. It is an 1 1/2 inch diameter tube about 4 inches long with an angled off shoot 1/2 inch diameter.
Liters, since a kitchen sink would hold at least 1 liter or 1000 milliliters.
Why would you not have water at the kitchen or bathroom sinks but have good pressure in the bathtubs and outside?
Most likely your bath and kitchen faucets have aerators. whereas your bathtub and outside faucet do not. In areas of hard water, minerals and sand build up in the aerators and… need to be cleaned or replaced. Also the aerators could be water savers and will reduce flow as well. Hope this helps.
